Mary Jane Chester of Kennett Square, PA, formerly of Hinsdale, NH, passed away April 17, 2018.

Jane was a graduate of Hinsdale High School, Hinsdale, NH and attended the University of Hartford. She spent 20 years in the horse racing industry and 20 years as a realtor in 5 different states.

Jane’s unique brand of wit and humor will be missed by all of her loved ones, especially her adoring husband, Michael. This song; Love Minus Zero/No Limit describes Michael and Jane’s love for one another: “My love she speaks like silence, without ideals or violence.  She doesn’t have to say she’s faithful, yet she’s true, like ice, like fire.  People carry roses, and make promises by the hour, my love she laughs like the flowers, Valentines can’t buy her” (Bob Dylan).

Jane was predeceased by her mother and father, Harold and Marguerite Bernier and her sister, Barbara. She is survived by her loving husband of 33 years, Michael Chester; sisters, Beverly and Carol; her brother, Bob; many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
